about

In 2011, Australian folk band Rand and Holland officially parted ways.

Since then, the band’s leader Brett Thompson has sat on this final recording. Until now.

In the months before their end, Thompson and the other members of Rand and Holland played a series of burning live sets in their hometown of Sydney that marked out a new and more ferocious sonic territory. They were performances born of imploding band dynamics and fuelled by interpersonal ruptures forming within the band.

The sets polarised audiences, equally exciting and horrifying. Heavy and apocalyptic, these live experiments informed this self-titled edition from Rand and Holland.

Produced by long term collaborator Chris Townend (Laura Jean, Grand Salvo, Oren Ambarchi), the record is forceful, rich and powerful; filled with a restless fire and a burdened heaviness. It is the group’s most intense offering. Thompson summarises the record as “the ultimate sit alone and feel anxious album”.

Recording sessions were hazy and tense and repeatedly cancelled and rescheduled. In this black pool of uncertainty and tension perhaps the finest hour of Rand and Holland was revealed. Nothing comes easy and nothing good ever came without some bloodletting.

This is a Guide To Saints Edition.
